Rosie and Michael dated for almost three years before an eventful trip to visit family in Washington, DC, for Rosie’s birthday. Since the travel dates coincided with the city’s National Cherry Blossom Festival, Michael planned to pop the question while enjoying a scenic walk around the Tidal Basin.
